It's no longer the act of the electronics, room and speakers disappearing but the illusion of being in the actual space where the recording took place. Now that the grounding is fully implemented, the time to upgrade my speakers has come. Only way to fully accomplish this feat. More to come.
Pure natural realism is the best way to describe this system. New groundbreaking enhancements. Not only about lowering noise floor, music reaches me like I have no electronics in the chain. Image density is lifelike with all the latest developments in the last six months.
I’ve got the speaker grounded with a second Troy Elite NG which has two special Empress NG filters dedicated for the crossover. This is the holy grail of ultimate natural accuracy and clarity into the music.
Finally got around to grounding my Cessaro Chopin Signature speakers to the Tripoint Troy NG. Should have done this a long time ago, everything makes sense now. This will become a industry standard norm in the future, just like the Tripoint Troy was the first grounding device in the industry to establish a new category. Because of the Troy setting a new standard, all these other companies have followed with their own grounding conditioners. Nordost, Etreq, Shunyata, Telos, Synergistic Research, CAD just to name a few, more will follow. Speakers and ground box in my book are the two most important components in highend audio. Yes, even more important factor than the room. I've witnessed this, which I thought it was the impossible feat to overcome.
Year 2018 had some changes, added Truth pre amp and Exemplar Exception phono stage and Tripoint Audio Emperor Mkii ground cable to my amp. Stay tuned in 2019 for the biggest upgrade in the history of highend audio.
The biggest upgrade yet, added Troy Elite to the system. This addition has made me change the title of my system. No longer it's about only lowering noise floor, music now reaches me as their is no electronics in the chain. There is no going back after you experience this feeling. No system ever in my journey in the last 30 years has been able to achieve this. Can't stop listening from the joy and disbelief.
Tripoint Empress speaker filtration instrument changes the norm of what we are accustomed to listen to. The sound field is much closer to live music as instruments are fleshed out. The added density and body for each insttument is unreal. My favorite attribute is the total coherency of all the drivers. Music is served as a whole. Only Empress can deliver this due to its blazing speed. Other attempts just add energy that doesn't belong in the music, lifelike coherency is lost.
Game over. Completed system by adding the last two Emperor ground cables to the amps. Transient response, timing, and details like live music. What is even more addictive is the easiness and flow of the music. The feeling or soul of the performance is transmitted in a new dimension. Currently discovering my music collection all over again. Music bliss. This is the new benchmark in music reproduction.
Added a third Emperor ground cable to the system. This time the Robert Koda K-10 pre amp gets the honor. New benchmark in fidelity and realism. No equipment design topology or grounding scheme can match this level of intoxicating musicality that the Emperor ground cable can deliver. Has to be heard to be believed.. I've been reading all the nonsense at the WBF regarding measurable data to prove the benefits of grounding conditioners and their associated grounding cables. Ham ha!!! Today I sing as I type this.
Hi Agear, nice to hear from you. These days I spend my time listening to music, life is to short. I've been following some of the threads in WBF regarding grounding schemes, SOTA speaker systems! and dacs, what a joke? Folks just don't get it. You know what I mean as we've had many discussions in the past.
These days I'm lucky to say that on a daily basis I can experience my music collection in the most coherent system on the planet and it's quite a thrilling experience. To answer your question of what is new, working with some new prototype grounding cables to push the envelope further in the realism camp.
